Montana’s Big Sky has some of the most epic scenery in the country and – arguably – the best skiing in North America. Check out our guide on where to stay, with stunning lodging options all bookable on Culture Trip.

This part of Montana was always known as the West Entrance to Yellowstone National Park, but hasn’t had quite the winter kudos of places like Aspen, Colorado. However, in recent years – with the development of more lift access and the addition of luxury lodges and cabins – this is swiftly changing. Most significantly, this beautiful mountain resort and community have managed to keep its rustic feel.
